The Aboriginal Resource Office (ARO) at Memorial welcomes you to our website. We are happy that your path has taken you here and that you may be considering attending Memorial.  Memorial University's St. John's Campus is home to approximately 18,000 students. Of this number there are over 500 Aboriginal students who self-identify on the St. John's campus. Memorial University understands 'Aboriginal' as having First Nations, Inuit or Métis ancestry. Most of Memorial's Aboriginal students come from various areas of Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as other provinces across Canada.

There are many resources, programs and services dedicated to Aboriginal students on the St. John’s Campus. Under Student Services there is an Aboriginal Resource Office Coordinator and an Aboriginal Liaison Officer. The St. John’s campus is home to the Siawiti'nej Aboriginal Student Council, and new students are always encouraged to join. Memorial has an Aboriginal representative on the Memorial University Student’s Union (MUNSU) who will take your concerns to heart. There is a study room on the sixth floor of the University Centre for Aboriginal students managed by MUNSU and an Aboriginal Student lounge located at UC-4005. We also have student gatherings, occasional Aboriginal films, Aboriginal welcome events, Aboriginal awareness activities, culturally safe spaces for students to practice smudging and Kullik/Qulliq lighting, as well as many other exciting initiatives.
